    Well done on the pound hun!

    Re friends and eating, I usually do like ML suggested and say I'm low carb because I'm reacting to wheat, etc - amazing how many people calm down!

    Was feeling depressed today, because ever since weigh in on Tuesday, i gained 2lbs and it wasn't shifting, i'm used to daily water fluctuations but it was strange for me to gain 2lbs and keep them on for 3 days in a row. So, after almost 40 days of being perfect on Atkins i've had a big carb binge today. Ate two bags of crisps, a kit kat, KFC for dinner. Not too huge but big enough to get me out of ketosis for sure, probably at least 200g of carbs. Who knows, it might help, i found having a carb day every so often before actually helped spur on the weightloss again the following week, it might break me through 14stone 7 finally once i lose the water weight again. Will definitely be back to 100% tomorrow because i'm feeling rotten and bloated now, had my fill of carbs.

    If i can't break through 14stone 7 in February then i'm going to look to change to a different diet because that will have been almost 3 months without breaking through and perhaps i need to do something different for a month or two.

    Hey love - maybe post really detailed menus for a week just in case there's anything anyone can spot that might be tripping you up?

    As I said in your other post, when I feel a bit stuck I up my percentage of calories from fat to more like 70-75 percent, and try to eat mainly meat, eggs and the lower carb veggies. Has anything crept in that might be acting as a staller? It must be so frustrating, but you know the diet works for you - a week of back to basics may sort it out. If you need a break though, then you need a break xx

    Well it's not like i haven't lost any weight at all, i've lost 1lb a week throughout january, but a lot of that was due to getting into ketosis and losing water, as soon as i hit 14stone 7 which was my low of last year, my weight has bounced back up 2lbs and stayed there. I haven't even been eating much veggies, when i say i've been 100%, i've been totally on plan without any slips and not eaten anything processed, etc. Most days my carb was even below 15g. My typical day looks like this:

    Breakfast: 2 eggs (either a cheese omlette, or boiled eggs, or fried)

    Lunch: Roast chicken thighs roasted in olive oil or butter, green veg either cabbage or broccoli

    Dinner: butter fried steak with fried mushrooms or chicken mayonnaise salad (lettuce, cucumber)

    Snacks: cheese, leftovers, coffee with unsweetened almond milk, crispy bacon, tuna & mayonnaise

    It's really frustrating because i'm more 'on plan' than i've ever been yet my weight won't go below 14 stone 7, i know i've only been here for a little while in 2013, but at the end of 2012 i was stuck at this weight for getting on 6 weeks i think. At that time i upped exercise a lot and it didn't help.

    So, after yesterdays big carb pigout i only gained 2lbs, which is obviously water weight. Surprised it wasn't more, maybe i'll put on some more by tomorrow.

    Thinking about going back to Exante or a similar VLCD for 3 or 4 weeks to see if i can just push my weight below the 14stone 7 i'm stuck at. Either that or a fat fast.

    That really is seriously frustrating. Your menu there looks fine, there's not much I could suggest to change it - and if you've lost on that before then you should lose now. I'm not a big fan of the fat fast but you could try 3 days (it's only meant for a max of 3-5) and see if it kick starts anything.

    (I don't advocate upping exercise for weight loss - it seems to help some people but most studies show it actually negatively impacts attempts to diet - its best to implement exercise once you're maintaining or close to it)

    Ah, yeh i wonder if all the exercise last year was creating a stall... i did exercise an awful lot.

    I even cut out the MiMs on my diet, i had maybe one this whole month, and artificial sweetners. Only other thing i can think of is maybe caffeine in coffee, i could try switching to decaff. Think i will go ahead and try a 3 day fat fast and see what happens. Will take vitamins to keep me as healthy as possible too. If the fat fast doesn't work then i'm seriously considering 4 weeks on Exante, if that can't break me through then i don't know what will. Went shopping yesterday and have got tons of 'fat' stuff in the fridge so ready to get going today.

    This morning's weight is 14stone 9.2lbs.

    Does anyone know how to get the pie chart on MFP on the computer version? i normally track with my iphone app but i'm doing it online today and can't find the pie chart thingy.

    All is going well so far anyway, having 1000 calories today in 5 separate 200 calorie 'meals'. Will write up my menu when the day is over, but finding it easy so far (compared to a VLCD it's actually much easier).

    Good luck with the fat fast - really hope you can break through this barrier...would have driven me nuts if my weight had stopped shifting for that long!

    1000 cals seems awfully little to me these days, but I guess compared to VLCD, or 5:2 fasting days, it's almost generous, lol!

    Will be very interested to see how you get on

    They wouldn't work for the fat fast Susie, it's 1000 calories per day of which 90 percent has to be pure fat. Dr Atkins recommends something like 5 1oz portions of macademia nuts or 5 1oz portions of cream cheese, or 5 tbsp double cream - and that's it for your day. It's not healthy at all, contains nearly no nutrition and is dangerously low on protein BUT for 3-5 days it won't kill you and it's impossible not to lose on it. The problem people can have is with the weight bouncing back on when they go back to regular induction eating (as could also happen switching back from a vlcd) and with the restriction being so great that they end up cheating/binging.

    I tried it about 2 years ago, twice. Felt terrible after the second day and did end up falling off the wagon, so it's not something I'd do again - for me eating 1500 calories at 75% fat works just as well for a good loss. But some people do find the fat fast worth it as a brief occasional thing - Atkins says to only do it after a 6 week stall. Basically if you can lose weight any other way then that's preferable.

    Here is what i've eaten today:

    Breakfast: 40ml extra thick double cream

    Lunch: 35g full fat soft cheese, 75g mature cheddar, little bit of spring onion less than 2g just to flavour the cheese

    Dinner: 40g salami
    also, had a bit of almond milk in my coffee, no more than 12 calories total all day.

    Still got some calories left, around 200 cals, going to have egg mayonnaise, one egg with lots of mayo. I spaced all my food out pretty good, i think the key is in not eating your whole allowance at once, little and often and i've not yet felt hungry. Can't get the pie chart on mfp which is annoying but i'm pretty sure my fat ratios are way up there, mfp is saying i had 2g carbs, 67g fat, 31g protein

    They don't have a pie chart on the web browser for some reason - it is worth checking on your phone as soon as you can though. My maths isn't good enough to work out the percentages from the grams although I'm sure it's doable. The good thing is that the mega high fat levels definitely kill hunger.
